Hot Chocolate Recipe!

Hot Chocolate.

You could say I'm a fan.

If I could make amazingly rich hot chocolate from all of the different chocolates & heavy cream, every time I turned around, I would! But I can't.. could get a little expensive!

So, my mom, sister, & I have been on the hunt of the best hot chocolate that is easy, inexpensive, & yet still very, very yummy..

I do believe we have a winner.

Here she is! (:

For Microwave Single Serving:
  • 2 Tablespoons Cocoa
  • 1 - 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • Dash Of Salt
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • Whipped Topping - Optional
  • Cinnamon - Optional
Mix sugar, cocoa, & salt together in a large mug.

In a liquid measuring cup, heat milk in the microwave, on HIGH (100%), for 1-1/2 minutes, or until hot.

Gradually add hot milk into cocoa mixture, mixing well.

Once incorporated, stir in vanilla, & top with whipped cream & cinnamon, if desired. Enjoy!

For Stove Top Four Servings:  - Fav!
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1/4 Cocoa
  • Dash Of Salt
  • 1/3 Cup Hot Water
  • 4 Cups Milk
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • Whipped Topping - Optional
  • Cinnamon - Optional

Mix sugar, cocoa, & salt in saucepan, then stir in the water.

Cook & stir over medium heat until mixture boils. Continue to let the mixture boil for 2 minutes. STIR! STIR! STIR! Nothing like burnt hot chocolate.. Icky!

Then pour milk into the chocolate mixture & heat, but DO NOT boil.

Once hot, remove from heat & add in the vanilla. Pour into cups & top those beauties with a heap of whipped topping & a dash of cinnamon. Drink up!

Stay warm & cozy my peeps.(:
